I am writing a pcmcia device driver as my thesis. I have read
David Hinds' PCMCIA-HOWTO and PCMCIA-PROG, but I still have no idea how to start it.
I have no experence in writing device drivers, not to mention PCMCIA. Could someone please give me some pointers for me to get started?
The card I am working on is a data acquasition card from National Instruments. There are source code for a very similar card, and it uses rtlinux. Is this necessary for all PCMCIA cards, or is it just for the data acquasition card, or it is purely optional?
If you may find my questions are very stupid. I am sorry for my lack of knowledge on this topic, but I really need your help to get started.
